New Orleans: One of The 15 Best Cities in the USA

Many Americans have stayed close-to-home these past few years, taking advantage of the incredible urban experiences within a few hours’ drive. Travelers seemed to prefer the warmer climates of the Southern and Western states for these domestic trips — only three cities on the list are in the Northeast or the Midwest. But wherever Travel + Leisure readers went, they sought out cities with a fun-loving spirit, delicious regional cuisine, and historic sites.

Every year for our World’s Best Awards survey, T+L asks readers to weigh in on travel experiences around the globe — to share their opinions on the top cities, islands, cruise ships, spas, airlines, and more. Readers rated cities on their sights and landmarks, culture, cuisine, friendliness, shopping, and overall value.

“While many readers raved about NOLA’s dynamic food scene and quirky tours (especially those in swamps and cemeteries), others homed in on its singular atmosphere. “You feel the overpowering spiritual energy of the past and the deeply complicated history of the city,” explained one voter.”
